Customer Rating

The Extra Dry entry in La Quintinye's vermouth range. Taking inspiration from G'Vine gin's botanical heavy approach and the grape know-how of Ciroc vodka this combines Pineau de Charentes with white wine and herbs to procuce a complex and pleasingly dry aperitif that great for mixing or drinking over ice.

La Quintinye Vermouth Royal Extra Dry Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Billy A

    Nose: Very herby, predominantly dried herbs rather than fresh: rosemary, sage and lavender, especially. Some buttery notes and a hint of grape sweetness.

    Palate: Lightly soured white wine to begin, with buttered bread and an almost soapy softness in the middle. There was a lot of lavender and towards the end a growing tannic grapeskin note.

    Finish: Peppery spice, sage, wormwood bitterness and lingering tannins.

    Comment: One for mixing, as you'd expect from a Extra Dry, with the otherwise fairly complex palate quite light and dry in the middle, welcoming other flavours. However, it does work surprisingly well on its own, with the central dryness being a relief from the strength of character in the rest of the palate.

    Although not as triumphant as La Quintinye Rouge, the Dry is a robust, complex, worthy alternative to Dolin. Wouldn''t pair it with a delicate spirit, however.
